I gaze aghast as the society –
Exchanges rights for the beliefs –
Of those who live in fear.
Fear that was taught by those who-
Hold the devil’s bounty near to their hearts
People who denounce their anti-Christ hero
Pointing long diamond fingers toward those who love God’s true gifts.
Alcohol, imagination, and sex.
Long fingers damning these truths -As the roots of all-evil.
Long fingers pointing toward the crucifixion
Of those who long to be free
The society that finds satisfaction
In sending the youth off to war
While they long to keep the elderly alive
While, with hands raised to heaven
Thank God for his sons sacrifice –
Professing a desire to get a heavenly reward.
This society fights for the right to abort a baby
While prosecuting those who mistreat animals
I stair aghast
As we are told –Freedom is not Free
You must lose freedoms to keep freedoms
If you don’t pay you can’t play
If you don’t have enough money you can play anyway.
A society of oxymoron
A society of ignorant morons.
